Middlesbrough vs Burton Albion Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Middlesbrough’s form has nosedived in recent weeks and the defeat against QPR leaves Boro without a victory in the last four matches. The club could lose the sixth spot to Nottingham Forest by the time the game kicks off. Meanwhile, Burton Albion have been through a tough run of games even in League One with three losses in the last four matches. After their relegation from the Championship last season, Burton Albion would not have expected to find themselves in the 15th place. Tony Pulis may place a lot of focus on the upcoming league match against Reading, but the club do have the strength to get a win. However, they have been low on goals throughout the campaign. I would pick a Boro win and under 2.5 goals.

Middlesbrough have scored in the first half in just two of the last 10 matches across all competitions. Pulis has struggled with his team’s slow starts and it is unlikely to change in a game against Burton Albion, who may have a defensive approach. I would pick Boro to scored highest in the second half.

Middlesbrough win and under 2.5 goals – 13/5

Middlesbrough to score highest in the second half – 6/5
